The vertical alignement of the content is not conserved when generating labels.
How to reproduce the problem:

insert the label's text and the fields
Format: sheet A4
Brand: Avery A4, Type J8159 Address
Tab Options: Entire Sheet, Synchronize the content (box checked)
click on "New Document" button

Select first label (top left): red squares and then double click to open the frame window
Tab "Options": vertical alignement: Center then OK to close the window
Tool > Mailing
check: From this document
output: File, save as single document and then OK
save the merged document (eg Toto.odt)
open Toto.odt: the text of the labels is not centered, the alignement is a top alignement instead of the desired center alignement.

NB: The problem is the same with previous version LibreOffice

Test doc for non-mailmerge

I have run into this bug only after upgrading from the 4.4 branch to 5.2.

I am not using mailmerge, but am using a label template. I have 30 text boxes, all set to center vertical content alignment. The file is saved, closed, then opened. The top row is now top vertical content alignment.

I have attached the file I am working with,

Dear sdsic,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
